The Cold Moment - Gay Art Male Art by Michael Taggart Photography

There is a moment – right before you have been left – right before you leave – when something better just might be. A breath of a happier moment. The smallest hope makes it that much colder.

It’s the circle of life – until – one day – you meet the right one – and there is no cold moment.


This is the first of the double picture we took with the idea of having Arty play two parts. I found myself getting a bit emotional when I made this. It got really cold, harsh and real for me.

But I finally found my “right one”.

In the New Year, I hope you all find your “right one” and have nothing but “Hot Moments”!

Almost 3D - Gay Art Male Art by Michael Taggart Photography

I’ve been working on a subtle shading that makes a model pop out from the background and look 3-Dimensional. I think it worked!

Reach - Gay Art Male Art by Michael Taggart Photography

You broke me

On the stone of your heart

sucked out the color

leaving black and gray night

But the morning comes

I see the light

I reach for the color

I’ll be whole again

Alternate poem:

Oh, to be a jagged rock beside a stormy sea…

and have a model such as this, sit patiently on me.

Altar Boy 2 - Gay Art Male Art by Michael Taggart Photography

“Altar Boy” was banned on Facebook, so I thought this was a wonderful time to do an “Altar Boy 2”.

Love the dark, risque look the stained glass brings to the picture. Michael is looking very sexy and dark.

My Town - Gay Art Male Art by Michael Taggart Photography

Ever think about your town and realize – this is my place – I rock it here!
You know where to eat, the backroads and shortcuts, what’s playing, where to hang out.
It’s a small slice of the world – but it’s your slice of the world!

For me it’s Louisville, Kentucky, USA!

Movie Star- gay art male art by Michael Taggart Photography

quiet introspection

Movie Star - Gay Art Male Art by Michael Taggart Photography

The very first model I shot with – Krishna – has become quiet the local indie movie star. We talked about his shots and he said it’s a lot of waiting – a lot of quiet times – just running lines in your head – waiting for the moment to shine.

So this shot of Matt Moe is an homage to all the work and patience that goes into being a movie star.
